LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) – An art exhibit in Lincoln will feature a number of dramatic works, but don’t expect a chat with the artists. They’re behind bars.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports (http://bit.ly/2dky9Gs ) that the 16 works – both visual and written pieces – will be on display at Indigo Bridge Books in Lincoln through Oct. 31.

The exhibit, “Captive Creativity: Dispatches from Tecumseh,” features the works of nine inmates from the maximum security Tecumseh State Correctional Institution.

Becca Ross, of Lincoln, helped organize the display. She says about half will be for sale, with proceeds directly supporting the artists.

In addition, donations will be collected for a books-to-prisoners project.
